Need an idea for boneless chicken breasts tonight!

Ok, so I was planning on grilling a few chicken breasts for me and my friend who's visiting tonight, but I forgot to put the chicken in a marinade this morning.

Any ideas on a decent grilled chicken breasts dish that I will only have about 30 minutes to make? I almost ALWAYS marinade my chicken breasts for at least a few hours, so I'm a bit at a loss here...

Thanks!

make a curry sauce, then cube the chicken and add it to boiling salt water with star anise, ginger, garlic, cloves, fenugreek leaves and fennel seeds.
5 mins later then will be cooked, now add that to the curry sauce and serve with Rice.

You still have time to pound it out thin first, marinade in whatever, and pan sear. Dip in seasoned flour (salt, pepper, garlic powder, etc.) and saute 3 or so minutes per side, remove and tent for 5 or so minutes. Chicken will be tender and juicy. If you use a combination teriyaki, white wine, and pineapple you can slice and top some rice, some spring onions for flavor and garnish. In the rice you can add some veggies (peas, asparagus, peppers of some kind, carrots, etc.. Basically, you could have a meal in a bowl.

Remove some of the marinade before you add your chicken to it and heat it, thicken with a slurry, and serve as a sauce.

Obviously it won't taste the same, but if you prefer brown mustard, I don't see why it wouldn't work. You might want to pair it with a different herb; I don't use brown mustard, so I don't have a suggestion, but maybe someone else will chime in.

I think thyme will still work just fine.

I just pan roasted a BS chicken breast and I'm going to make a quesadilla before I run off to a meeting.

Also, if you are only going to marinade for such a short time, do so at room temp. That will help speed the process along.

Will there be leftovers? Will your house be unlocked? Where do you live?
